Playing Spaghetti Squash with Brown Butter and Sage


  • 2 large spaghetti squash, halved lengthwise
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 stick butter, cut into 8 pieces
  • 24 leaves sage
  • A few grates nutmeg
  • Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano


Serves: 4


Preheat oven to 400°F. 

Halve the squash and place all halves cut side down on baking sheets. Roast 1 hour or until tender, turn cut side up and shred the squash into spaghetti-like strands with a fork; season with salt and pepper.

Melt butter in a small pan over medium heat and let brown until nutty and fragrant. Add sage leaves a few at a time and fry; remove to drain. 

Pour browned butter over the squash and crumble 6 sage leaves sage over each half squash. Season with nutmeg and top with cheese; toss to combine. Serve in the shell, a half squash per portion.
